    Hi Everyone

    Hello Everyone

    I'm new Passats having become the owner of a family friends 2007 Passat B6 Estate 2.0 TDI 140PS with dsg gearbox.

    I live in a village near Spalding Lincolnshire, happily married father of 5 with 6 (I think) grandchildren, and I'm only 44!!!

    So far I am really not impressed with the Passat as it appears to be a real lemon. I am about to go to the relevant thread and start my trouble shooting.

    My previous car was a Saab 93 TTid so I'm not averse to unreliability, but at this moment in time I'm thinking I've made a HUGE mistake with this one ����

    So, hopefully some of you may be able to help me with the ever growing list of woe.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Quite honestly the Passat 3C from 2006>2008 was an utter disaster of a car where reliability is concerned and still is, the biggest Lemon of a car I personally know of, in nearly 40 years of professionally repairing VAG group cars I cannot think of one that is more unreliable and a bigger headache than an early 3C, I would not have one if you gave it me..... ohh hang on we bought one last week, well a 2010 but still, what is wrong with me? My excuse is the business is buying it as a loan car, nothing to do with me, I hate Diesel...

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Well here we have a VW owner in trouble and bordering on suicide.
    Just my opinion of course but your bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired young man.
